Christmas. You gotta love it. Something I loved about this Christmas was the fact that my mom was trying to be a good grandma so every single day there was a different activity for us to participate in with Sage and Naomi.Everybody was home and it was nice just to spend some serious quality time together.
Up at the cabin we played a bunch of duets on the piano. Sage obviously was loving her life during this time.
Naomi is four years old and she can seriously read. It's amazing. We were playing this game where we told her to spell words and she could totally do it. FOUR YEARS OLD!! (She can also skip) We also tried to teach her the whole song "Do a Deer" from the Sound of Music and she did great.
Naomi (you may call her Naomini or Naomi but nothing else) on Christmas morning. Please notice her little cheetah leggings and hot pink sparkle TOMS. Hahah I couldn't believe she actually got TOMS.
Sage repping her new little leotard which she didn't take off for quite some time. I loved her in this little leotard because her belly just poked out so cute.
Sage was the angel. During the prayer she was bothering Naomi and Naomi got so frustrated that she finally yelled at Sage, "Sage, you are the BADDEST angel EVER!" Needless to say there was a lot of laughter during that prayer.
The family all reading the "Night Before Christmas" in special voices given and everybody had to guess who was being portrayed. Very fun.
Please notice the little jumpers on the girls. My mom, Annie, and I made those outfits so they would look cute on Christmas Eve....mission accomplished.
Literally Naomi was obsessed with me this whole break. She always chose me to sit by her, put her to sleep, read her stories, play with her, etc etc etc. I was loving it and everybody else was green with jealousy.
We made some divinity together which is a tradition we always make. My grandma and grandpa are the experts. It is high stress because it is very time sensitive but according to everybody, it was the best divinity EVER.
Not only can Naomi read but she learned how to ski this year. It was adorable. But while we were at Brighton the power went out so the lifts stopped working but we wanted to see all that she learned so my dad carried her to the top of the hill so she could ski down. She did great.
Naomi and I at lunch during skiing. She was sure to show me her little button that said how great she was during her ski lessons.
Snowgirl inspired by Naomi who wore that wig for a whole evening. Naomi really really REALLY wanted to make a snowman and luckily we made one before the snow went all away. One of Jayne's friends brought us 6 more snowmen so we had a whole snowman village in our front yard. You wouldn't even believe how happy this made my mom.
So much time and effort went into this gingerbread village. It was even a two day project. So worth it though.
Sage was killing me in her outfit and she wouldn't let go of Matthew's finger which was even more funny.
